Why is cybersecurity important?

We live in a digital era which understands that our private information is more vulnerable than ever before. We all live in a world which is networked together, from internet banking to government infrastructure, where data is stored on computers and other devices. A portion of that data can be sensitive information, whether that be intellectual property, financial data, personal information, or other types of data for which unauthorized access or exposure could have negative consequences.

Cyber-attack is now an international concern and has given many concerns that hacks and other security attacks could endanger the global economy. Organizations transmit sensitive data across networks and to other devices in the course of doing businesses, and cyber security describes to protect that information and the systems used to process or store it.

As the volume of cyber-attacks grows, companies and organizations, especially those that deal information related to national security, health, or financial records, need to take steps to protect their sensitive business and personal information.
